Dead Nation 2 Concept Art Stumbles into Sight

Bullet to the brain
It seems like a sequel to Housemarque’s popular dual-joystick shooter Dead Nation was on the cards at one point. The official website of concept artist Amar Djouad features three pieces of artwork from the hypothetical follow-up, one of which includes dinosaurs. Sadly, according to the employee’s CGHub portfolio, the project was cancelled.
Other pitches presented on Djouad’s website include a shelved The Walking Dead tie-in and a Superman game. Judging by the artwork, the former looked like it was going to be a reworked version of Dead Nation, taking advantage of the same isometric perspective. Meanwhile, the Man of Steel title was supposedly based on an older, worn out incarnation of the superhero.
